Welcome to Josephine Sculpture Park’s nARTure Tuesday! This week, let’s form a band with nature by making instruments from natural objects! JSP Program Director, Jeri K. Howell, creates 3 instruments in this video: a mushroom drum, seed pod shaker, and grass whistle. What instruments and sounds do YOU create with natural objects?
Play your instruments while you watch our Virtual Barn Raisin’, a weeklong online concert series starting this Sunday, August 16 through Saturday, August 22 each night at 7pm! Virtual Barn Raisin’ concerts feature Amythyst Kiah, Nur-D, Ben Sollee, Hancock & Shouse, Jasmine Fouts, Rhythm Science Sound, & Jeri Katherine Howell & Nat Colten. By virtually attending this awesome event, sharing it with your friends and family, and donating, you help JSP add 10 acres to the park and restore an historic tobacco barn to host more creative community experiences.

Happy nARTure Tuesday! This week we have another fun JSP scavenger hunt.
We have LOTS of critter-like sculptures (and live critters!) throughout the Park’s 30 acres.
These sculptures are just a small snippet of what YOU can explore! What other JSP sculptures remind you of a critter? Come find them! JSP is open daily from dawn to dusk, no appointment needed.
Also, be sure to register for this Sunday, August 2nd’s First Sunday Nature Tour: Trails & Tales – A Family Story Walk about the animals that live at JSP! Pre-registration required.
